Election Day arrives Tuesday, Nov. 8, when those who haven’t voted early will venture to their polling places to cast ballots to elect leaders ranging from grassroots township supervisors to a U.S. Congressional representative.

Here are few tidbits we want our readers to know:

  • Doublecheck your polling location at

All registered voters in Crow Wing County should have received a postcard in early August with updated election information, including changes that resulted after the 2022 redistricting.
The postcards list the voter’s polling place, precinct and election districts for local and state races.

You’ll also find that information and a sample ballot at

Depending on where you live, election ballots will include candidates for township, city and school board seats; Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor seats; county commissioners, county sheriff and county attorney; state representatives and senators; U.S. Congressional District 8 House seat; judicial offices; along with state races for governor and lieutenant governor, secretary of state, auditor and attorney general.


  • Go online to Tuesday night, Nov. 8, to find your local election results. We plan to work late that night to get as many results as become available online.

Please know your Nov. 9 Echo Journal print edition will not have election results. Rather, we’ll provide a comprehensive recap of local township, city and county results in our Nov. 16 edition.
In past years, we were able to have a later press time to share local election results. That is no longer possible, and our Tuesday deadline is two hours before polls close.

That doesn’t mean we’ll call it a day though. As already said, we’ll work hard to post those results online at so you can easily find your results.
